Orders of the Day — Finance (No. 2) Bill: Personal and Married Couple's Allowances (12 May 1993)

Brian H Donohoe: Will my hon. Friend tell me how many charity shops there are in his constituency? If it is anything like mine, he will find that in the past five years the only expanding industry is charity shops. What is the situation in his constituency?

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: General Practitioners (Drug Dispensing) (9 Jun 1993)

Brian H Donohoe: To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what representations he has received from residents of Springside and Crosshouse on preservation of the system of general practitioners dispensing drugs to their patients; and what response he has made.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: General Practitioners (Drug Dispensing) (9 Jun 1993)

Brian H Donohoe: That answer surprises me because the service that is on offer in Crosshouse is under severe threat. A chemist has decided to open for business, and that jeopardises a long-term solution that was in place, whereby Crosshouse general practitioners dispensed drugs themselves. Given that the Minister has heard nothing, will he meet my hon. Friend the Member for Kilmarnock and loudoun (Mr....

Orders of the Day — European Parliamentary Elections Bill: Clause 1 (6 Jul 1993)

Brian H Donohoe: Will my hon. Friend tell us how it is possible to consider an MEP in Scotland to be a local MEP, when two of them represent both the east and the west coasts of Scotland?

Orders of the Day — Local Government and Water (Scotland) (14 Jul 1993)

Brian H Donohoe: I am absolutely opposed to the Secretary of State for Scotland's proposal to reform Scottish local government, as outlined in "Shaping the Future—The New Councils." This is the latest episode in a systematic and concerted attack on the powers of Scottish local government which began when the Tories first came to power in 1979. It must have been a surprise to anyone reading the document to...

Orders of the Day — Local Government and Water (Scotland) (14 Jul 1993)

Brian H Donohoe: The hon. Gentleman had 20 minutes—I have only 10 minutes. Any review of Scottish local government must be undertaken in conjunction with the establishment of a local Scottish Parliament. Without that underlying principle, any reform of Scottish local government will certainly be temporary. The Secretary of State should understand that. The Scottish people have repeatedly voted yes for...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (26 Oct 1993)

Brian H Donohoe: Will the Prime Minister explain why the Government are this week to announce the winding up of the development corporation in my constituency, at a cost of £16·5 million, given that we have had announcements of some 700 job losses at Jetstream in Prestwick this month and of some 320 job losses in my constituency today? What logic is there behind the Government's decision?

Orders of the Day — Local Government (Scotland and Wales) (22 Nov 1993)

Brian H Donohoe: Does the Secretary of State regard it as efficient to allow such a system to occur as we have in Orkney, Shetland and the Western Isles? That is the system that he wants to introduce in the rest of Scotland.

Orders of the Day — Local Government (Scotland and Wales) (22 Nov 1993)

Brian H Donohoe: Why, therefore, is the hon. Member for Ayr (Mr. Gallie) running scared from a debate on the reorganisation of local government on Friday evening?

Estimates Day: Aerospace Support (13 Dec 1993)

Brian H Donohoe: Has anything come of that meeting with the Minister of State for Defence Procurement, given that it is the wish of the Jetstream management and the work force that an order be placed by the Ministry of Defence to replace old aircraft?

General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (16 Dec 1993)

Brian H Donohoe: Given the Prime Minister's earlier answer to the question on the aerospace industry, can he tell us how small aircraft will be affected? There is a potential problem with Jetstream in the Ayrshire area. Will the Prime Minister assure us that that matter will be included in any negotiations with the United States?

Orders of the Day — Local Government etc. (Scotland) Bill (17 Jan 1994)

Brian H Donohoe: I must declare an interest in the debate and in the Bill. The interest is of someone who passionately believes in the ethos of Scottish local government, and who is appalled by these proposals. The Bill is the latest in a long line of legislative sledgehammers that the Government have sought to use on Scottish local government. There are a great many reasons why the House should not be...

Orders of the Day — Local Government etc. (Scotland) Bill (17 Jan 1994)

Brian H Donohoe: I would not argue with that. I am arguing about gerrymandering to create unfair electoral areas, particularly in Ayrshire. When Gallielee was created, it literally meant the promised land to one Conservative Member, until the deliberations of the Parliamentary Boundary Commission, got in the way. Perhaps because of that, I understand that even the hon. Member for Ayr (Mr. Gallie) is now...

Orders of the Day — Local Government etc. (Scotland) Bill (17 Jan 1994)

Brian H Donohoe: I am sure that such political criteria are not those on which Lord Wheatley would have based his reforms. They are unique to Tory Administrations.

Orders of the Day — Local Government etc. (Scotland) Bill (17 Jan 1994)

Brian H Donohoe: Party political prejudice should never be allowed to dictate the structure of local government, because political bias is no basis for good local government. The Government's central argument in favour of the Bill is that money will be saved and the extent of bureaucracy will be minimised. That was outlined in a report conveniently produced for the Scottish Office by the management...

Orders of the Day — Local Government etc. (Scotland) Bill (17 Jan 1994)

Brian H Donohoe: That is my reading of the decision. Irvine new town area and Cunninghame will be deprived of £17 million as a result of the winding up of the development corporation, so the opposite of what the hon. Gentleman has suggested will happen. When the Secretary of State launched the White Paper, he did not even mention the decision to wind up the Irvine development corporation. The launch was...

Points of Order (23 Feb 1994)

Brian H Donohoe: on a point of order, Madam Speaker. Why, during the past four Scottish questions, have I failed to catch your eye? My hon. Friend the Member for Greenock and Port Glasgow (Dr. Godman) says that it has something to do with my tie. Will you advise me whether that is the case?

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Economy (23 Mar 1994)

Brian H Donohoe: The Secretary of State will no doubt have been well briefed on the report just issued by the Select Committee on Transport in connection with bilateral agreements and in particular the way in which they affect air freight. Does the Scottish Office intend to make any representations to improve the business of Prestwick airport?
